alpaca is sexy

alpaca is sexy, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

Sorry about the photo... it's about the best I can currently do. I have to use the mac cam 'cause a) I'm visiting the fam and forgot my camera and b) my camera apparently eats rechargeable batteries, 'cause no matter how much I charge them they no longer seem to work.

In any case, I'm really happy with how this turned out!

Pattern: Sexy Vesty (free download from ravelry)
Needles: US 7 for body and 6 for neck and arm ribbing
Yarn: 2 skeins Berroco Ultra Alpaca.
Mods: Needle sizes 2 sizes bigger than called for... and not because I wasn't getting gauge... it just seemed ridiculously small. Also, added 2 extra inches to the length... thank goodness 'cause it still seems a little on the short side.
